August 11, 2010

Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center celebrated the expansion of access to primary and specialty medical care for West Shore residents this week with the grand opening of its new Penn State Hershey Medical Group -- Camp Hill practice. The new practice site, at 3025 Market Street, Camp Hill, Pa., provides easy access to a full array of primary care, specialty care and diagnostic services in one convenient location.

The Penn State Hershey Medical Group is a 700-plus physician multispecialty group practice with primary care and specialty care services in 18 locations across central Pennsylvania. Medical Group physicians serve as faculty of the Penn State College of Medicine, bringing the exceptional quality of the region’s academic medical center to outpatient practice locations throughout the region.

The new 30,000-square-foot site includes two practices. The primary care practice includes eight family medicine, pediatrics and sports medicine providers. The specialty practice features providers with expertise in more than 10 specialties, including cardiology, obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedics (including physical therapy, in partnership with Select Medical Corp.), neurosurgery and other surgical specialties, as well as diagnostic services such as imaging and clinical labs for blood work.

“Having all of these services available close to home, including the ability to get needed tests and be seen by a specialty physician in one location, is not only convenient for West Shore residents but also promotes more effective coordination of care,” said Harold L. Paz, chief executive officer of the Penn State Hershey Medical Center, senior vice president for health affairs at Penn State and dean of the Penn State College of Medicine. “This new location also allows us to serve the residents of the West Shore through health education events led by Medical Center and College of Medicine faculty and staff.”

Penn State Hershey Medical Group -- Camp Hill practice will hold a series of free, monthly lectures on a variety of health-related topics. At 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 14, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Susann Schetter, co-director of the Penn State Hershey Breast Center, will present the first evening lecture at the new site. The topic of the lecture is "Do I need a mammogram?"
